Cutie Pie DT Card - Escape to the Country

It's the second Monday of the month so it must be time for a new challenge at Cutie Pie!  This month our theme is "Escape to the Country", meaning we'd like to see your farm or garden projects, and don't forget, they must be CUTE.  We're sponsored this time by 2 Cute Ink, who kindly provided the DT with some super sweet images to play with, I certainly enjoyed colouring my farm mouse with my Promarkers.
 To make my card, I covered a 5x7 card with red pearl cardstock, then added a mat of kraft, inked with Ground Espresso Distress Ink.  The gingham papers and sentiment tag are from Papermania's Country Life range, and were all inked with the same ink as before for a rustic look.
To embellish, I added a brown doily, a white picket fence, made with a Marianne die, and a flower, to match the one the mouse is holding, made with a Woodware punch with Flower Soft in the centre, the leaves were cut with Marianne dies.  The final touch was a trio of brown pearls.
